Floral Net Thread Cover

I work in a grocery store floral department. When roses and other fragile flowers are delivered, each flower is covered with a soft mesh sheath designed to protect the flower from injury and prevent it from blooming. The net sheaths are thrown away after they are removed from the flowers, but I requested permission to save them instead, and I use them to cover my thread spools. They work especially well with cone thread, but can be cut to fit any size spool. They prevent the thread from unwinding in storage and help keep the spools and cones clean.
